Time off is even more important than money in overall satisfactionThe amount of time Chinese people spent engaged in leisure activities decreased to 2.27 hours per day on average in 2017 from 2.55 hours three years ago, mainly due to busier work routines and a nonuniform system of paid vacation, according to a report released on Friday.Residents in four first-tier cities - Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing - saw the least daily leisure time nationwide: 1.94, 2.04, 2.14 and 2.25 hours, respectively, nearly half that of the United States, Germany and the United Kingdom, the report said.The Green Book of China's Leisure, jointly compiled by the National Academy of Economic Strategy and Tourism Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, is the sixth report to focus on leisure behavior in China since 2009.The report said leisure activity is the key to quality of life and overall happiness - even more important than income level.Song Rui, director of the research center, said that large gaps exist between different groups in terms of time spent in leisure activities - and the fact that a paid vacation standard has not yet been fully instituted nationwide is complicating matters."Thus, most people choose to take part in leisure activities only during legal holidays, placing logistical burdens on popular tourism venues," she said. "Legal holidays such as Spring Festival and May Day only take up about 8 percent of a calendar year, but domestic visits seen at key tourist attractions during these holidays accounted for more than 32 percent of annual visits in 2016."Data compiled from 2,552 respondents nationwide by the research center in 2017 also showed that 40.1 percent do not have two consecutive days off per week on a regular basis."Raising the leisure development campaign to the status of a State-level strategy and deepening industry reforms - as well as perfecting the paid-leave system - will greatly improve the lives of the Chinese people," Song said.  custom fundraising bracelets

[Photo/Xinhua] XIAMEN -- The 2018 annual conference of the summit for entrepreneurs across the Taiwan Straits concluded Wednesday in Xiamen, East China's Fujian province, with deals worth 10.3 billion yuan (about $1.5 billion) signed. When addressing the conference Tuesday, Wang Yang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, said that the Chinese mainland would only open wider and wider to Taiwan, with ever-improving policies and services. Themed around new measures for industrial integration and sharing new business opportunities, this year's conference gathered more than 1,000 cross-Straits entrepreneurs, heads of industrial and business groups and experts to pool ideas for exchange and cooperation. Guo Jinlong, president of the mainland-based council of the summit, said that cross-Straits entrepreneurs should help boost cross-Straits economic cooperation and industrial integration with practical actions. Vincent Siew, president of the Taiwan-based council of the summit, said that cross-Straits business cooperation would enter a new phase amid changes of global and cross-Straits economy, adding that entrepreneurs should contribute more to integrated cross-Straits economic development. Entrepreneurs attending the conference suggested that cross-Straits business circles should join hands to tackle new economic challenges, grasp new opportunities brought by cross-Straits economic integration development, and share new business opportunities. They also called on cross-Straits compatriots to work together to uphold the 1992 Consensus embodying the one-China principle and resolutely oppose and curb Taiwan independence, and to create a sound environment for cross-Straits economic cooperation as well as contribute to the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations and the realization of the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation.
